The season of holiday cheer and giving can be especially difficult for people going through loss, illness or other challenges that come with being human.
Atlanta-based poet, author and playwright Jon Goode is a close observer of how people make their way through the world. You may have seen him on HBO's Def Comedy Jam or CNN's Black in America. He's also host of the StorySLAM events at The Moth in Atlanta.
Goode's latest book, Conduit, is a collection of stories, poems and essays. He stopped by On Second Thought to recite "Mastectomy" from the book. It's about a woman putting her diagnosis into perspective with grace and wisdom.
